QUALIFICATIONS AND PROFILE
Graduated in Washington State, Mark started his career in New York City where he worked for 4 years on residential and corporate projects. In Quebec since 2005, he has worked primarily for L’OEUF on environmental projects including residential (single and multi-family), municipal and religious projects. He has also collaborated on several competitions and projects aiming for LEED certification. With the goal of building Concept-Construction projects Mark recently obtained his RBQ general contractor’s license and created his construction company.
Since starting at L’OEUF, Mark has worked on environmental projects. As part of the design team for the Ste-Anne project, Mark was responsible for LEED certification (certification targeted, possibility of gold certification) and coordination with the engineers.
For Mark Brightman, the design of housing means optimizing the functional, aesthetic and ecological qualities of the building. To achieve this, his approach is based primarily on listening to the client, paying attention to the quality of the design and the integration of the building into the environment. His desire is to integrate and perfect the act of building. It strives to cultivate a partnership with all actors in the construction industry. It is by developing, for example, its practice of «design build» and by developing collaborations with specialized contractors that Mark gets involved in construction and distinguishes itself. The objectives of these partnerships are focused on the success of the project and the satisfaction of the client’s expectations.
